You don't need to modify RPM to add fields to the filename:

~/.rpmmacros:
%_rpmfilename   %%{NAME}-%%{VERSION}-%%{RELEASE}.%%{ARCH}.rpm

You can add whatever tags you want here.  Now, whether there is a
suitable tag to use is another story.  Vendor and Distribution tags
have traditionally not been in a suitable format for a filename.  If
the vendor tag could be agreed to be restricted to short strings like
"rh", "fe", etc. then this might be workable:

%_rpmfilename   %%{NAME}-%%{VERSION}-%%{RELEASE}.%%{VENDOR}.%%{ARCH}.rpm
